Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an additional amount of funding given to schools with the aim to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, close the gap between these pupils and their peers and to support these pupils in reaching their full potential, both academically and socially. Pupil Premium Grant is available
for children registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever 6 FSM), Looked After Children (LAC) and children whose parents are in the Armed Forces (Service Pupil Premium-SPP).
Schools can spend this money as they see fit in order to ‘close the gap’ between pupils who are perceived to be ‘disadvantaged’ and other pupils. It is not linked to a specific child but used for overall impact. This funding is provided directly to the school from the Government therefore schools are held accountable for
the expenditure and impact of this funding.
What do schools need to publish 2023-2024?
Schools whose PP grant allocation for the financial year 2023-24 is based on 6 or more eligible pupils are required to publish an updated pupil premium strategy statement annually. Those whose allocation is based on 5 pupils or fewer are not required to publish a pupil premium strategy statement.
At each of our federation schools the number of PP children is 5 or fewer, therefore previous PP strategies can be found on this website but there is no updated 2023-2024 strategy to protect the anonymity for those who qualify for PP spending.
If you wish to discuss whether your child is eligible and how school can benefit from financial support or if you wish to discuss how school has used previous allocations please refer to our PP Strategy 2020-2023 or contact Mrs. Lynsey Wagstaff (Headteacher) or Mrs. Lisa Kitchen (Deputy Head and SENCO).
